    Old (er) cassette on new wheelset.

    This may sound like a stupid question but bear with me i'm a noob wrencher...

    I FINALLY got my custom wheelset (ordered anyhow). Now all I need to do is get my cassette (sram 970) from my current wheelset on to the new. The new wheelset has a king hub on the rear BTW.

    I won't have any fit compatibility issues with my new hub, say, with the freewheel or lockring of something will I?

    Should fit fine. There've been some issues with XT cassettes on the King freehub (you don't have a freewheel) solved by lockrings with deeper splines (either King or older Shimano lockrings) or with spacers, but don't think that's been a problem with the sram cassettes. Now, as far as the aluminum freehub body goes (unless you ordered steel), do expect after a while some notching from the loose cogs...
